Nightmare Boulevard – Imagine your worst nightmare…now imagine it’s not a dream
According to IMDb Starmeter, Ron Perlman is the 2nd hottest actor around the world. With his current box office hit, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Perlman has climbed the popular chart and found a cozy seat just between Batman stars Heath Ledger and Christian Bale.
So what exactly is this Starmeter, and how does it rate the Stars? It’s “plain and simple, [it] represents what people are interested in, based not on small statistical samplings, but on the actual behavior of millions of IMDb users.” (IMDb is the world’s largest film industry database open to the public.)
The statistics clearly show that Perlman is who the public wants to see. And now that he’s at the top of his game, what would stop you from picking up any of his other films.
Quantum Releasing offers Nightmare Boulevard.
Detective Perry (Perlman) has been chasing a serial killer with dead-end clues. On the other side of town, an attractive married woman is neglected by her workaholic husband. Lonely and insecure, she foolishly falls for the seductive charms of a younger man. The love affair is brief as she realizes that her new lover has a dark, sinister, obsessive side. When the detective and cheating housewife’s paths cross, clues begin to unravel…but do they lead to the serial killer Perry is looking for or just open a new case of homicides.

“What happens if you mix a little bit of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, with a slice of American Pie…? Beside gratuitous nudity, you get the wonderfully predictable Senior Skip Day,” reviewed Brandon Barras of UGO.com.
Just days after Senior Skip Day was released on DVD in the US, it soared to the number 3 spot for most rented DVD for over three weeks. So what’s all the hype about? This amusing teen comedy, starring Tara Reid, Lea Thompson, Larry Miller and Norm MacDonald, delivers the laughs and just the perfect amount of bare bodies you’re looking for. It’s no wonder that this movie can’t stay stocked on DVD shelves.
Adam Harris, a semi-lame senior, is head over heels in love with Cara. Unfortunately, she is the most popular girl in school and untouchable. However, on the one day of the year that he could actually have a chance with her, known as senior skip day, he screws it all up by accidentally slipping the location of the party to his principal. But have no fear, in a last resort effort, he moves the party to his house and all seems to be well…or is it? It’s the perfect year round film.

Rivercoast Film will release the new feature-length horror film Witches’ Night, a Quantum Releasing title, on July 8, 2008 to all US DVD retail sales, rental and online entertainment outlets. “We’re extremely excited about this film,” says Michael Katchman, CEO of Rivercoast Film. “It’s a fun horror movie with an intelligent story, great effects, excellent production value and a top-notch cast.” Betsy Baker, famous for her role in Sam Raimi’s influential first film, The Evil Dead, stars in Witches’ Night, along with Gil McKinney of NBC TV’s “ER.”
“Witches’ Night is sure to be a horror fan hit,” says Katchman. “From the first frame to the fiery finale, it’s filled with great scares and won’t disappoint. Director Paul Traynor modeled Witches’ Night after the successful fright films in the 70s, with characters to remember and relate to.” “To me, the 70’s were the real heyday of horror, and those are the films we hoped to emulate. Cookie-cutter characters’ being mutilated in ingenious ways has been overdone to death. I like a great story. I like to get to know the characters, to believe in them and their surroundings, so that when they encounter something horrific I feel like I’m with them…like it’s a shared experience. I think the audience will feel the same way when watching Witches’ Night.”
“Oh, this is gonna be fun.” “It was your idea, smartass. I wanted to go to a topless bar.”
It’s Halloween weekend. Jim’s humiliated, left standing at the altar, so his friends whisk him away to the middle of nowhere. Enough beer makes a spur-of-the-moment canoe trip seem like a good idea…and they can’t believe their luck—they meet four hot women tending a bonfire on the banks of the wild river. But their titillation turns to dread when they realize the women have deadly plans for them. It’s a race for survival, as Jim tries to save his friends from being turned into grisly human sacrifices on Witches’ Night.
